Investing in Human Capital
Friday, May 8, 2015

High-quality employees remain a relatively rare commodity in corporate America. Because of this, during the next decade, it will be common to see more large companies cultivating their human capital. One of the most logical ways to do this is to pay people what they are worth. American income inequality has increased steadily during the past 50 years, and has led to staggering rates of disengaged employees. Recognizing this link, many companies are assessing worker compensation levels, particularly for entry-level employees. Another way companies are investing in their employees is through wellness programs such as gym memberships or yoga classes. These programs, companies are finding, help to reduce stress levels among their employees and boost productivity at work. By taking care of employees, companies enable their workers to take care of customers. But in order to build this well-rounded, engaged workforce, organizations must take a broader perspective on what it means to provide for their employees.
